What's the scoop on Richloam in Central Florida?
I've been riding ATVs for years at Croom and recently purchased a dual sport bike so I could ride other places. I read about Richloam on this site and found out its just a few miles east of Croom. I found a road map of it on a FWM site and it looks like it's comprised of all public roads and numbered forest roads. Which sounds perfect for a dual sport motorcycle for exploring.
Do you need a permit to ride there or just a licensed bike? Can you trailer a bike there? Is there parking areas for trailers?
Anything I should know about the place before I go?

Mostly old logging roads.
Some good mud holes when it's wet.
Park at Croom (safer) and ride your legal d/s bike over on rt50.
My son and I have done it a few times. It's fun.
No permit needed as of 2006. Just a legal bike.

I wouldn't go so far as to say not wellcome but you need to show
a little common courtesy. 8 or 9 months of the year we can pretty
much have the National and state lands to ourselves. Hunting
season fills the year out. Remember most of these people have
hunted these places for several generations. Natch they feel like
its their place in the fall/winter.The help pay for the upkeep etc.
with their licenses while we happily pouch the land the remainder of the time. the next time you read somebody bitching about
drunken hunters blah blah blah Remember how outsiders look
at motorcyclists, especially dirt bikes in the woods. Same stuff.
they are different...fear them...
